a march 1st deadline for the across-the-board government cuts known as the sequester. >> this is not a game. this is reality. >> i don't like the sequester. it's taking a meat axe to our government. >> these steps would seriously damage the fragile american economy. >> still fragile enough that four years after the recession the u.s. economy actually shrank in the last three months of 2012. the storm clouds were ready to blow away and washington basically called them back. >> i think we're all aware that we have some urgent business to do. >> if not for indecisive, uncompromising, and polarizing politicians, america's economy could take off again. >> we are producing more energy and america can become an energy exporter. >> we're in the midst of an energy boom and it's lowering the price of electricity and bringing manufacturing back to america. a housing boom fueled by the lowest interest rates in history. and 35 months of private sector job creation. america's future could be great. >> i'd like to focus on what lies beyond the fiscal debate. >> i'd like to, too. but
that the government has to live within it's means and it is costing us jobs and people can't make the hiring decisions to get the going again. >> it has to be both. >> there are a lot of places that we are making investments. you have to invest in education that is down. america is a pothole. there are areas where we do have to bring spending down but through structural reform and in the area of health care. you are right about that, and our country can bring the cost curve down. and the health care bill that was signed into law, we are seeing now, premiums continue to go up across the country and we are hearing that the costs are a problem. i think we have to put that fight behind us. because your point that this is expensive is right. we have to find a way to bring that cost down so it is good for medicare and private employers to their workers. we work together. here is what i don't understand. >> the president does think it is a spending problem. that is what jake carney said. the president has pulled back. he said he would look at eligibility requirements. if you agree we have a spending problem
that is for of and by the people, not for of and by the government. that is the big battle that we are in right now. we need to make a decision with our eyes open which country do we want to be. >> it's interesting because you made the comparison of ancient rome, and you said this could happen to america s that something you fear? >> i definitely fear it because we are in very much the same position that they were in. so powerful, a pinnacle nation in the world, no competition, going to be there forever, so they thought, and then all the military ex-passionism started and tap purchasing this group and that group. , that requires a lot of people when you capture people to keep them under control and they quickly began to run out of money. then they are looking for any kind of scheme to get money from the people, and the rich people, they have a lot of money so let's come up with some schemes to get their money. that erodes another aspect of confidence and creativity within your society and they just continued right down the path of destruction. >> and that could happen here? >> it's in the process of happeni
the state of the union. john? >> reporter: hey, joe. this was government activism that president obama offered for an age of limited resources. the biggest new initiative he offered was an increase in the minimum wage over three years from 7.25 to $9 an hour. the burden for that would be placed, of course, on employers. he offered a laundry list of proposals domestically on education, on energy, on infrastructure, but he made the point to members of congress that none of them would add to the deficit because they were all going to be paid for by offsetting spending cuts. of course, he's not reached agreement with the congress. on here's the president last night. >> nothing i'm proposed tonight should increase our deficit by a single dime. it is not a bigger government we need but a smart or government that sets priorities and invests in broad-based growth. let's set party interests aside and work to pass a budget that replaces reckless cuts with smart savings and wise investments in our future. let's do it without the brinksmanship that stresses consumers and scares off investors.

to benghazi, something that has nothing do with chuck hagel, who wasn't even in the government at the time. today, the unprecedented step came to a head. that failed to get the 60 votes needed. that mob at the gate headed over >> what are republicans really trying to do? nbc's kelly o'donnell is at the capital tonight. let me just tell you this, i'm going to ask you, why are they doing this? why are they holding up a cabinet appointment? >> for some of them, it is about chuck hagel wanting to know more, who were not a part of committee. they just all received. they make it very clear. it's not personal, they say. it is a tool within the rules of the senate. they say the only tool they have to try to extract from the administration information they did not willingingly give. so case in point, there are two things that have happened because they put up this resistance. >> today, they received a letter and they believed that that is a credit to the white house, that they've now given them that information. they're satisfied, for now, on that. expect more questions, chris u when joan brennan,
. the quote of the night it is not a bigger government we need. it is a smarter government. >>brian: the president can deliver a speech. he was totally in his element yesterday. he looked totally -- anyone who wants to do well in front of a crowd, you look at bill clinton, ronald reagan and i think president obama. here's the area on which they can agree. immigration reform, both sides agree. voting reform, both sides agree. tax reform, both sides agree. how are they going to do it? at least we know they can approach that together. the spending stuff, why isn't anybody talking about a infrastructure bank, maybe a combination or mostly private banks who have all this money and don't want to spend it or lend it, maybe the government can push the private banks lending into build these bridges in a way in which states can pay back or the people can pay back. >>steve: you were taublging about what a great -- talking about what a great speech the president of the united states gave. there's franken. were you watching john boehner? that guy looked like the guy at the end of a big dinner wh
for a more robust government presence in the economy and saying government and government spending which will rebuild the middle class. he won't call it government spending, he will call it investing and three areas in particular where the president wants to raise the spending level, invest more. they are edation, energy, and infrastructure. he wants to raise the level of spending in those three areas, that he believes, will create jobs. all of this will be partly paid for by raising the amount of money that the government takes from wealthy individuals, raising the amount of money that it takes from corporations and getting more money out of oil companies. overall, alisyn, it will ab fairly aggressive pursuit of the same policies we've been seeing for the last four years, for the next four years. he'll be aggressive this year. >> critics will say this new term, investment in the future is a synonym for stimulus. is there an argument to be made that the white house, i imagine, will make that stimulus was short-term, nd decades to come?future are >> speaker pelosi, former speaker pelosi i
. >> senator marco rubio, delivering a combative republican response. >> no government isn't going to help you get ahead. it's going to hold you back. more government isn't going to create opportunities. it's going to limit them. mr. president, i don't oppose your plan because i want to protect the rich. i oppose your plan because i want to protect my neighbors. >> but it was that unscripted lunge for water that's lighting up social media. the senator made light of the moment by tweeting a picture of the water bottle and cracking jokes on the morning talk shows. >> i needed water. what am i going to do, you know? it happens. god has a funny way of reminding us we're human. >>> good day. i'm andrea mitchell. live in washington. for the daily fix, chis and chuck todd, chief political correspondent and host of "the daily rundown." two speeches, two different approaches. chuck todd, we see the president on the road today. he'll be on the road the rest of the week. did he muddy up or cover up his middle class message, economic message with that incredible and emotional appeal at the end? >> or woul
. >> ooh, this ought to be good. please proceed, government regulators. >> we've actually had a fairly -- a fair number of consent orders. we do not have to bring people to trial or -- >> well, i appreciate you say you don't have to bring them to trial. my question is when did you bring them to trial? >> we have not had to do it as a practical matter to achieve our supervisory goals. >> and senator warren wasn't done making her point. >> we look at the distinction between what we could get if we go the trial and what we could get if we don't. >> i appreciate that. that's what everybody does. so the question i'm really asking is can you identify when you last took the wall street banks to trial? >> um, i will have to get back to you with the specific information. >> i think they all need water on that panel. what do you think? the government has acted cowardly when it comes to the big banks, no doubt about it. deals are cut and civil cases get settled out of court. the banks don't have to change any of their behavior. you and i get stuck, or could get stuck. warren wants to stop this en
savings. let's agree to keep the people's government open and pay our bills on time. it's not a bigger government e we need but a smarter government. >> the president's sweeping speech met with stoney faces including house speaker john boehner who came out blasting the president moments ago. >> last night the president offered up more of the same. higher taxes and more stimulus spending. weeks away from the president's sequester and the president laid out no plan. >> the speech we got was par for the course. very liberal, fairly partisan. >> does president obama's post speech tour and his message last night signal a commander-in-chief whose second term strategy is with or without you. >> he sure as heck wasn't trying to bring both sides together. his political calculation last night was i'm never going to e get the republicans to work with me. >> the message of the speech to my ears was speaking over the heads of congress and to congress saying do your job. >> connecticut democratic senator chris murphy joins us. by far the most unforgettable moment was the president's call to action o
excursions, gratuities, and government fees and taxes. is any of this enough? what do you want to make it better? >> right now we just want them home and want them in our arms, just like everybody on that ship wants to get off that boat. >> there are 4,000 people on that boat that have someone waiting for them out here, just like we're just two. >> after they get settled on land and they get it behind them a little bit, i think it will start to settle and they're just going to realize it's probably not going to be enough. >> did you guys hear anything -- >> they opened the bar up and serving alcohol. >> which one of you brought -- >> serving alcohol to a bunch of angry, starving people. >> on a listing ship. >> did one of you bring antibiotics? >> we sure did. we contacted our doctors and told them what was going on with the situation, that our daughters were on there. they gave us an antibiotic to take with us to get our daughters started on, because we weren't sure we were getting them off. >> we don't know what kind of conditions they're in. we're dealing with staph infections and n
't expect government to solve every problem. they don't expect us to agree on every issue. but though expect us to put the nation's interests before party. >> president obama urging compromiseeyough expect us to p the nation's interests before party. >> president obama urging compromiseugh expect us to put e nation's interests before party. >> president obama urging compromisegh expect us to put t nation's interests before party. >> president obama urging compromise expect us to put the nation's interests before party. >> president obama urging compromise as he lays out his vision, but will republicans buy it. >>> cruise from hell. more details on board that carnival cruise ship. can i slowly limping its way back to alabama. there is sewage in the hallways. sorry to be sharing those details at this hour of the morning. welcome to a special edition of "early start". >> lots to get to this morning as we hit 5:00 here in washington, d.c.. just a few hours ago really president obama who was challenging congress to act, it was his state of the union address that was a response to from senator mar
of the handling of the sex abuse crisis but the only way the election of the next pope affects is how he governs the church. is he willing to tell people that elected him you're out of office. >> right. >> go to a monastery and wait for the cops. that would restore confidence in the vatican and in the papacy. but short of that there's no one signal. actually, there's not going to be one signal in the election of the next pope because everyone is looking at other factors too like geography or region or anything else. so it's not just one -- it's not just one issue. >> do you have hopes who the next pope will be. >> i like to speak to that more, the lack of moral credibility. the roman catholic church is known for its condemnation on issues relating to sexual morality. there's no credibility. in terms of pope most of the men that will vote for this pope have been selected by pope john paul ii or pope benedict xvi. it's not a real investment in our glory social justice in this church. i don't like to discount the holy spirit. >> can i ask you this question. if there are frustrations you have with t

polling, too. don't believe that the government is capable of securing our borders. his credibility on this is low. i don't think that that's what he shouldn't have talked about in the state of the union. >> i'm asking you a genuine question about this. right? if you want to see this passed, obviously do you. you worked hard on this. i think there -- i covered this issue, too. there is a relative amount of consensus about the immigration reform. if you want to see it passed and the president getting out front of it will imperil passing it, why do you want him to talk more about it? i-want you to answer that question after we take a break. ♪ alright, let's go. ♪ shimmy, shimmy chocolate. ♪ shimmy, shimmy chocolate. ♪ we, we chocolate cross over. ♪ yeah, we chocolate cross over. ♪ [ male announcer ] introducing fiber one 80 calorie chocolate cereal. ♪ chocolate. 80 calorie chocolate cereal. but that doesn't mean i don't want to make money.stor. i love making money. i try to be smart with my investments. i also try to keep my costs down. what's your plan? ishares. low cos
of that slowing down the workings of government. but i actually think that john mccain's -- >> you know, though, richard that in the end, we're hearing in the end most likely he's going to pass and be secretary of defense. so why hold him up over a recess when the pentagon desperately needs somebody at the helm? >> because in a funny sort of way, joe, it's exactly what mccain said. it's a way of getting their pound of flesh. it's a way of sending a message to hagel. and it's just a way of almost acting out the kind of rancor and just the dislike that is out there. >> you seem awfully calm about this and resolved that this is just the way washington works. does this not trouble you at all? >> of course it troubles me, but it's also just the way that washington works. i do think in the end chuck hagel will get the job. and as you say, this is not about defense policy. what is so extraordinary is we actually have major defense issues from sequestration to the pivot towards asia, you name it. and none of this is part of it. and so you mentioned before the budget. what you're seeing here on virtuall
to thinking who comes next, who relinquishes power willingly whether it's in government, whether it's in your office? i mean it just doesn't happen. so i think that the irony here, one of them, is that this man who many people associate with the middle ages is going to go down in history as a modernizer because he really showed this modern reality and was the first, you know, even 600 years ago when it happened, it happened to heal a schism. this is happening because he, a, sees we're living longer now, but, b, sees for all the incense and candlelight around the papacy, it's also a job and there are certain requirements of the job and if you can't do it, what he's saying and voting with his feet, is that you need to leave. >> well said. >> amen. >> i think it shows a lot of humility. in april of 2005 when pope john paul ii died we broadcasted "hardball" from rome. as we closed our last show from there, let's listen. look at these people standing for hours, day and night, through the avenues of rome, packed together as if they had been caught and crushed in an industrial strength trash compact
't expect government to solve every problem. but they do expect us to put the nation's interests before party. >> reporter: it all came on the same day speaker john boehner called the president out for not having the courage or guts to make tough choices on the budget. the president used the power of the podium to push back. >> some in congress have proposed preventing only the defense cuts. by making even bigger cuts to things like education and job training. medicare and social security benefits. that idea is even worse. >> reporter: as is typical of most state of the union addresses, the president covered lots of ground. >> our first priority is making america a magnet for new jobs and manufacturing. we must do more to combat climate change. send me a comprehensive immigration reform bill in the next few months, and i will sign it right away. i ask this congress to declare that women should earn a living equal to their efforts and finally pass the paycheck fairness act this year. >> reporter: not to mention the middle east, afghanistan, counterterrorism, cyber terrorism, and voting r

power in the entire economy. there's one -- we essentially make the government their leverage. they say they need to get at least this much of the profit, and if we don't see a huge disemployment affect from that, then it's probably a pretty good idea. yes, to marco rubio's point, to speaker yon boehner's point, it's not a solution to the problems of our economy, but it is one thing we can do that helps very, very low skill workers, people at the bottom of the income ladder, get a little bit more from what are at this moment very profitable, very profitable period in corporate profits. >> it's not just about a little bit more because that's a good idea. if you look at -- i mean, one in three american families is living near poverty. i mean, the census number -- the number of american families that are basically living on the brink of the powerhouse, as we cut programs to help the poor and the needy, is rather staggering when you look at, again, corporate profits. demos did a great study and looked at the impact of raising the minimum wage on workers, and effectively, if wal-mart, for ex
a follow on to the kind of inauguration address where the president talked about the role of government in society. tonight, i think he's going to talk about pretty robust role of government in the economy and he's going to focus on mice. not the rodent. it's an acronym for manufacturing, infrastructure, clean energy and education. those are the four topics i think you're going to hear. >> there are republicans around the country rolling your eyes as you're saying this. >> yes. i understand that. i think part of the president's job tonight is to explain how he's going to bring republicans along, but remember, he's talking over the republicans to the american people -- >> what happened to the middle? >> let me just say, the complaint -- i think the complaint against the president and the congress in general has not that they're not talking to what americans care most about right now which is the economy ask jobs. and that's true. the budget deficit -- >> he was talking about 18 and 19. >> i'm just saying that -- >> global warming and what was the other thing? >> there's immigration, ther
is probably as close enough for government work is the way i would put it. >> bill: all right. so to you it's a fiction. >> it's an utter fiction. >> bill: second thing is, the president claimed that manufacturers in the u.s.a. have added a half million jobs. 500,000. and you say? >> again, it's a question of timing and the time frame. again, in this instance, he goes back to 2010 and begins in january. the count or at least his. >> bill: first year of his tenure he doesn't count anything. >> doesn't count anything in that statement. in fact, we have lost 6 million manufacturing jobs. >> bill: 600,000? >> 600,000 rather than 500,000. >> bill: instead of a gain of 500, you say, you lou dobbs. >> negative 600,000. >> bill: on the fox business channel says we have lost 600,000. >> absolutely. >> bill: again, big discrepancy. >> big discrepancy it leaves out the fact that we still have 3 million fewer manufacturing jobs in this country today than we did 10 years ago. the president's statement almost sounds like we have recovered those jobs to the -- added. >> bill: bush administration. >> absol
thought? >> well, you know, certainly some of the things the federal government has done over the years haven't been all that successful. and the white house and many democrats in congress are trying to bring about a new approach. and part of what the president talked about in the state of the union is anew approach. but there are some things the federal government is better off doing than others. one of the things, frankly, i think would be a great role for the federal government in education is to help provide some of the resources for infrastructure, for building new schools. it doesn't get the federal government involved in curriculum, but rather in helping with deferred maintenance and helping to build these facilities. that doesn't interfere with that state federal role. but there is an important obligation here to try to help, particularly in those states that are really struggling. i think my colleague ms. blackburn would like to see the federal government out of everything. and a much diminished federal government and we see that reflected in the gop budget, which would cut foo
at the corporate governance issue. are they reinvesting in the business for growth? i actually think the big surprise for a lot of people is how strong growth could actually be. not necessarily those that pay a dividend, but those that create shareholder value. >> that would be something we want to see given we've been on this stagnant move. final word here, go ahead, sir. >> maria, one thing. we forget demographics. they talk about the fed pushing on a string relative to interest rates where the inflation rate is. but demographics, there's a huge swath to this country that no matter how you make the only game in town, they're going to stick with their investments because of where they are in the maturity cycle of their own lives. >> yeah. that's a fair point. absolutely. >> until it starts creeping up. once it starts to creep up and people get their statements, people are going to become worried. if the bond market moves 50 basis points, people are going to lose their whole coupon for the year. >> great point. we'll leave it there. >> let's face it. it's not just demographics. >> final word
. the house majority and their speaker, john boehner. >> we have seemed to have an obsession with government bookkeeping. this is a rigged game and it is the wrong game for us to play. >> as we look ahead to 2016, rubio and the jindals and christies of the world represent two different schools of thinking in terms of how to rebrand the party and how to fight obama. >>> well, it's valentine's day, but love is not in the air, for anyone here in washington. what's new about that? up next, more on the republican party, at odds with itself, messenger and messaging. plus, what do they think of the obama agenda. with all the love lost, is it time for a breakup? we talk to tennessee congressman, marsha blackburn, who says it's time to get rid of the grand old party. >>> but first, a look ahead, in today's politics planner, a lot of sequester hearings today. arne duncan on the hill, talking about that. secretary clinton getting an honor at the pentagon today. and of course, the president in atlanta, but he also does a google hangout. so get your head gear on. you're watching "the daily rundown," only
